E-bike in Crete Senesi

In the south-west of Siena, in the upper basin of the Ombrone, there is a wide territorial strip characterised by the presence of innumerable minuscule summits of white or yellowish clay. It is the region of Crete Senesi: a constantly changing landscape in the alternating succession of the seasons, thanks to incessant erosive phenomena. These hills become green in spring due to the recent wheat seedings and grow purple in summer with flowering dense sulla clover. There is no photographer, film- amateur, or wandering artist who has not been intrigued by the erosion furrows and Jura limestone.

 In the last years, a new tourism approach, slower and more sustainable, far from the mass has encouraged in our area the wish of recovering old paths and ancient ways. Easy and medium difficulty paths which permit to be still in contact with the nature, such as our four proposals below.
